The Transfiguration by Raphael

This painting is an oil paining on a wood panel. It was painted by Raphael in the year 1518-1520. He actually left the painting incomplete because he passed away, but it was finished by his assistants Giulio Romano and Giovanni Francesco Penni. The upper part of the painting portray the transfiguration if christ and the lower parts illustrates the miracle of the possessed boy and on the ground are his disciples. In the bible Jesus heals the boy to demonstrate the power of faith and prayer. I like how he made the top layer bright with a bright aroma around Christ and the lower part as darkness and the disciples look sad because they are unable to help the boy.
